While working on a sample web site I noticed my comments textbox was inheriting a gray background from my web site’s BODY styles.
After playing around with Firebug (which hopefully you’re using) I noticed this style was being inherited from the BODY styling that I had in my Theme.
By default, Sitefinity is picking up my Theme styling and applying it to RadEditor. This might be fine, unless you’re utilizing a background-color that shouldn’t be applied to RadEditor. So how can this be fixed?
Configuring new styles for RadEditor
The CSS applied to Sitefinity is configured in Sitefinity’s Settings section. This setting can be found at in Advanced and Appearance. The property you’re looking for is called EditorContentAreaCssFile.
To apply new styles to RadEditor, simply point Sitefinity to a new CSS file. From there, you’ll need to create that CSS file in your web site. Here is an example.
/* These styles are used for styling RadEditor and are only applied when RadEditor is used on the page */
/* This style is referenced in Sitefinity's configuration in the Appearance area */
background-color: White !important;
As demonstrated above, you might need to utilize the !important attribute to styles inherited from your other theme. Using these styles you should be able to style RadEditor however you might wish.
